My husband Dave and I moved to Threshfield in 2002 to improve our quality of life. After 6 years of looking for the perfect position, I found it at Threshfield Court.

I am responsible for maintaining all aspects of the administration and financial activities at the home and take great pride in ensuring that everything runs like clockwork. I  have a wealth of experience, so am able to support families and residents who need further information about finances and care fees.

It is extremely rewarding to work with a great team and wonderful residents in such a happy environment. In a nutshell: I love my job at Threshfield Court!
